Daughter of legendary comic Ernie Kovacs and actress Edie Adams. She was just beginning a career as an actress when she was killed in an automobile accident on Mulhullond Drive in Los Angeles. Losing control over her car, she ran off the road and the car rolled, ejecting her through the sunroof and killing her instantly. She was 22 years old when she died. She had appeared in just one movie, “On the Air Live with Captain Midnight” (1979), in the role of Spunky, the blonde girlfriend of teenager Ziggy who starts a pirate radio station in Los Angeles and manages to stay just ahead of the FCC agents trying to shut down the station. Her accident is similar to the way in which her father, Ernie Kovacs, was killed. Some information about her life can be found in biographies about her father, including "The Ernie Kovacs Phile" (1975) by David Walley, and "Kovacsland: A Biography of Ernie Kovacs" (1990) by Diana Rico.
